Since time immemorial, Chicago has been a meeting place for Native peoples. With words of wisdom, stories, and histories old and new, we expand traditions of performance with an evening of music, dance, and spoken word, featuring local artists in a program curated by Vincent Romero (Laguna Pueblo).
Ahn’s affinity for people who are struggling came from his own experiences as a refugee in Korea. In all his rendering of the homeless, we are called to recognize the worth and dignity of every human being, knowing that each has untold stories behind their homelessness.
